Spiral Jetty & The Great Salt Lake
SPIRAL JETTY & THE GREAT SALT LAKE

I’ve been here once before, back when I lived in Salt Lake City for one month for an internship. The lake was so different this time. It has tides, and this time you could see Robert Smithson’s entire earthwork, in all it’s decaying glory. It was completed in April of 1970 and has been left for the visitor to discover and explore with adventurous spirit. It’s made from mud and basalt rocks from the area surrounding it, and it’s been washing away slowly ever since.

Enjoy our October visit.

You have to drive out to the middle of nowhere for Spiral Jetty. It’s a journey that passes horses, cows, sheep, you name it.

You can’t just stumble upon the Spiral Jetty. There’s one way in, there’s one way out.

A video with questionable musical choices. Hey. I’m on a deadline. Kind of.

The white blotches aren’t snow, that’s crystals of salt.
